The only really interesting large animal we saw were camels. This was taken the first day we were outside of the capital city, the same day as the Presidents birthday.
While I was taking this photo a van full of Africans pulled up to us and demanded money for taking the photo. We didn't give them anything, the people were just passing by and had nothing to do with the villagers in the photo.
I got the impression that they were just trying to take advantage of some white travelers.

I've never been to Chad, but the image you have here is pretty close to how I would have seen it in my mind. You spread the frame and balance everything well.

Welcome to Trekearth and thanks for posting this image from Chad. Yours is only the 34th photo from Chad on TE (compared to France with 65535 photos). I have been to N'Djamena a long time ago in 1974 and at that time we were advised not to travel by road out of the capital - and so we flew to Sudan.
Yours is a good sharp composition with much interest throughout the photo. A well balanced photo. You could have made the image bigger by taking the width up to 800 pixels.
Thanks for sharing (tfs), Marlene
